My friends list is full of really interesting posts, and big life-change announcements, both of which I want to reply to. However, my mother has guests, (even this 5 minutes online is stolen from my social obligations), and with one thing and another I'm not going to get online properly until Saturday afternoon. Boo.
Let's not even think about how many emails I owe, and replies to comments. Also, the combination of the tail end of a cold with very cold weather with running for trains (yes, I'm stupid, I spent that extra three minutes reading LJ this morning instead of leaving the house) means that I haven't been able to breathe terribly well all day.
Consider this a summary of the affectionate thoughts I'm sending in multiple directions, but don't have time to translate into words and type right now.
